Twice I have visited Sacsayhuaman, both times in awe. The truly remarkable construction defies any rational explanation. A mystical spirit follows you as you walk the grounds. It's not to be missed.

Don't miss this incredible archeological site that goes on and on. Beautiful, haunting and full of important stonework. Excellent.

Unfortunately this site can only be visited as part of a ticket for multiple sites, making it very expensive. We instead cheated by walking up the hill and around the site, without going in - having seen many Inca ruins in the last several weeks...More

Large Inca fortress with nice views over the city. It’s the best place to see the large Inca stonework, perfectly pieced together without any mortar, incredible construction, wish the Incas had built my place

If you like history and all that is in Peru, get up the hill and check this out. Inca walls and buildings on a much grander scale than in town and a great view.

We were in awe as we toured this architectural site. The mystery of its origin will stir your imagination and instill an appreciation of human ingenuity. Take your time and closely inspect how these massive rocks are put together. There is some walking involved but...More

A prime example of human will power. A fortress on top of a mountainous town. Amazing buildout of rocks, beautiful natural scenery and an amazing bird eye view of Cusco. Prime photography site.
